Ongoing Events

The Happy Booker

Happy Booker

Third Wednesdays from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Looking to expand your reading horizons? Join us for The Happy Booker Discussion Group!

This program meets in the library’s Reading Room on the third Wednesday of each month @ 6:30pm. All are welcome, join us!

The book for the November 15th meeting is: Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

Cat’s Cradle is Kurt Vonnegut’s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet’s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist, a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer, and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat’s Cradle is one of the twentieth century’s most important works–and Vonnegut at his very best.

Woodstock Book Club

November’s selection: Grief Cottage by Gail Godwin
